Wow. For being advertised and hyped so much, they didn't let many surprises out.
First of all, I'd like to point out that LYRA SPOKE! And she's apparently important enough to be a bride's maid for a princess. We did see her at Celestia's School for Talented Unicorns. I guess she made friends with Cadence there. Speaking of, totally didn't expect evil vibes from Cadence. Didn't expect a fake princess and new villain even more. And the duel Changeling Queen-Cadence song was pretty awesome. About time we got a villain song (a song from Discord would have been nice in his episodes). Cool fight between the Man Six and their changeling doubles. I liked the trickery involved, like Fluttershy pretending to be a copy or Rainbow Dash ambushing her changeling 'allies.' Kinda got a Powerpuff Girls
vibe from the end of it. And Pinkie's party cannon returns! In combat even. AND LYRA SPOKE! Glad that we got to see Luna. I wonder... maybe she's only active during the night? Ya' know, like she needs power from her celestial body to stay conscious or something. I know we've seen Celestia at night, but she is the older, and assumably more powerful, sister. Plus, a thousand years on the moon have to hinder you some. Anywho, I did wish we had seen more of real, non-evil Cadence though. Never got a good feel for her true self. Well, if we got a Luna episode, maybe we can get Shining Armor and Cadence again too.
Guess what? LYRA SPOKE! Just though I should mention that.

Are you kidding? I trained with Tibetan monks on the highest mountain peaks, in the most extreme whiteout conditions, for five whole years in order to hone my soul, body, and mind against anything that threatened their integrity.
I stood no chance against speaking Lyra. Was medically dead for at least an hour.

Both episodes in one. Found the link on Equestria Daily.

Nope. I initially watched the whole first season on YouTube when first getting into the show, and still use it if I miss a new ep's TV premiere, or to rewatch episodes.

This is the only of your dream episodes I could actually see happening. Under a punnier name of course.
Although, one where Pinkie deals with an irrational fear seems possible, just not of Spike. Same with your "Fluttermitten" episode. Could see Fluttershy having a secret crush, but not on a mainly fanon character like Doctor Whooves.

Don't. Buck logic. She's PINKIE PIE.
